Sounds like she might be transitioning to one nap. DS is 13 months and doing the same thing. On the days that I push back that morning nap a few hours, he takes a good solid 2-2.5 hour nap in the afternoon. It's hard though because he's so used to the routine that he gets grumpy when I push back that first nap. Getting outside or out of the house helps distract him. I remember DD going through this. I think I read in the No Cry Sleep book that at this age they don't need as much day sleep, like 2-3 hours.
Another thought is perhaps she's getting her one year molars? Those really seem to mess with sleep around here. The way I know is if I give him Motrin an hour before sleep time and he sleeps well - once the pain goes away he's able to sleep really well. If he's still sleeping not as well then I figure it's something else.
Hope things get better in the sleep area for you guys.
ETA - I just reread your post and I wonder if it's the cow's milk bothering her tummy. Maybe cut back on it for a few days and see if the sleep improves? Is she getting constipated from the milk? I remember our ped. saying that at this age constipation can be a cause of sleep problems.

Their hands may be small but their feelings are just as big as ours.
